I COVER THE WATERFRONT Lyrics

Artist: Billie Holiday
Album: The Billie Holiday Songbook

Johnny W. Green / Edward Heyman

Away from the city that hurts and knocks,
I'm standing alone by the desolate docks
in the still and the chill of the night
I see the horizon the great unknown
my heart has an ache
it's as heavy as stone
with the dawn coming on, make it last

I cover the waterfront
I'm watching the sea
Will the one I love
Be coming back to me

I cover the waterfront
In search of my love
An I'm covered
By a starlit sky above

Here am I
Patiently waiting
Hoping and longing
Oh how I yearn
Where are you
Have you thought back time
Will you remember
Will you return

Will the one I love
Be coming back
To me

There are errors in the lyrics. These are correct:

away from the city
that hurts and mocks
I'm standing alone
by the desolate docks
in still and the chill of the night

I see the horizon, the great unknown
my heart has an ache
it's as heavy as stone
will the dawn coming on make it light?

I cover the waterfront
I'm watching the sea
will the one Iove
be coming back to me?

I cover the waterfront
in search of my love
and I'm covered
by a starlit sky above

Here am I
patiently waiting
hoping and longing
oh how I yearn

where are you?
have you forgotten?
will you remember?
will you return?

I cover the waterfront
I'm watching the sea
will the one I love
be coming back to me?

will the one I love
be coming back to me?
